What is Scrambling


Scrambling is the activity of moving over rocky terrain in the mountains. Between hill walking and rock climbing, you have Scrambling. Easy grade 1 scrambles don't normally require a rope (depending on your confidence levels), but you will need to use your hands on the rock at times, and it will have exposed sections.
